BTAC Executive Director, Dawn Sutherland
How We Got Started…
The seed to birth Bridge-To-Africa Connection, Inc. began in 1977, when the founder, Dawn Sutherland became a student volunteer with Operation Crossroads Africa. In the 3 months spent in Ghana, West Africa, she helped build a school house and worked with the children and people in the village. That experience changed her life. During this time, Ms. Sutherland gained an appreciation for giving unconditionally and appreciating the little things in life.
What We Do
We believe and are passionate and committed that we will make a difference to challenge the status quo and change the life of one person at a time so that they can go to make a difference in the lives of their families and society.”
